That means that probably nobody got HVM working with this processor yet.

 I've an Intel Pentium D 945, but the Intel support tells
that the 900 series support the VT technology


As you see, some 9XX models are supported in then wiki's list. I have
no idea why exactly your model doesn't work with Xen. This can have
multiple reasons:

- your board doesn't support it (with some boards HVM doesn't work
even with a HVM Processor)
- the processor is an exception from the 900 series
- Xen doesn't work well together with the processor

Is there a way for my case to make Xen working?

You can at least use Xen in paravirtual mode instead of hardware
virtualization mode.

My computer is a Maxdata with a Pentium D 945 and a motherboard MSI MS 7248

As said above, maybe it's the board. You can nag your dealer and Intel
whyx they sell stuff that doesn't work well with hvm.
